4 Refund Policy 100% refunds are issued to students who officially drop from courses by the published refund deadlines.

Official drops may be completed by submitting a signed drop form to the Admissions department located in suite 1000 of the Community Commons Building (CCB) or online through IRIS using myheartland. The student should retain a printed copy of the successful drop transaction. No telephone drops will be accepted. If the student is unable to come to the college, a signed letter may be submitted requesting to be dropped from classes. The postmark date on the letter will be used to determine eligibility for a refund. No refunds are issued for withdrawals after the refund deadline. If the refund deadline has passed, a student may be considered for a full refund of tuition if a licensed physician documents that a major medical situation has occurred which supports the student s withdrawal from his/her classes. Medical withdrawals must be complete and not just for a reduced load. To be considered for a medical withdrawal, a letter must be written in a timely manner, including medical documentation, to the Dean of Enrollment Services. Reservists called to active duty while enrolled at Heartland Community College shall receive a full refund or credit against future enrollment. A letter requesting the drop and military documentation should be provided to the Dean of Enrollment Services. If a class is canceled because of insufficient enrollment or for another reason, students will receive full reimbursement of tuition and fees. How do I drop a course or cancel my enrollment? To avoid financial obligation to the College, students must notify the College in writing, or online (using IRIS in myheartland), postmarked or data entered, by the published refund dates if they do not plan to attend the courses in which they have enrolled. Please visit for published deadlines. No telephone requests can be accepted. If a student uses IRIS to drop or withdraw from a class, a printout of the successful transaction should be retained by the student. Refunds and the Heartland OneCard How are Heartland Community College refunds delivered to students? All refunds for cancelled and dropped classes will be paid according to the refund method selected by the student using their Heartland OneCard at If the student's account was paid using a credit or debit card, the student must notify the Business Office immediately following the enrollment change that caused the refund and provide the 16- digit card number and expiration date for any refund to be issued back to the credit/debit card used for payment. For security purposes, this card information is not stored by the College. When will refunds be issued? Financial aid credit balances (refunds) will typically begin to be issued by the 6th week of classes. Student refunds will typically begin to be issued during the 3rd week of classes. Student loan refunds will typically begin to be issued during the tenth week of class. What are my options for receiving all student refunds, including financial aid refunds? Your options include having your refund: Directly deposited into your One Account - Easy Refund (Funds available the same day as disbursement by the College); or, Deposited to another bank of your choice - ACH Transfer to Other Bank (Funds available 2 3 business days after disbursement by the College) For more information visit

5 What do students need to do? Heartland OneCards are mailed automatically to all students who are enrolled in credit classes. To ensure proper delivery of their Heartland OneCard by the Post Office, students need to keep their address current with the College and watch out for their heartland OneCard In the mail. Heartland OneCards are always mailed to the student's address on file with the College and cannot be forwarded by the Post Office. If a student throws away or loses his or her Heartland OneCard or it is sent to the address on file and the address is incorrect or undeliverable, a $20 charge will be assessed to the student to Issue a replacement card. This represents the charge by Higher One to issue a new card to the student. Students must log in to using their Heartland OneCard 16-digit card number once they have received their card to CHOOSE their refund preference. Students will not be able to receive any refunds owed to them by the College until they have chosen a refund preference. Can I have my refund deposited to another bank account? If you choose to have your refund deposited into your own bank account (checking or savings), you must still login to with the 16-digit card number from your Heartland One Card. For this option, you will need to choose the "ACH transfer to other bank" option and complete, print, and mail the third party signature form to the designated address. If you forget to print the signature form, it is available at Can I select a paper check for my refund instead? No, the College has committed to electronic delivery of refunds to ensure safety of student funds and security in delivery. Regardless of how you choose to receive your funds, a student must always activate their refund preference using their Heartland OneCard at What is the OneAccount? The OneAccount from Higher One is a fully-functioning FDIC insured checking account. The OneAccount is one of your choices for accessing student refunds and has no minimum balance and offers free Internet banking features. As with most bank accounts, overdraft, inactivity, and other penalty fees may be assessed. With it, you can use your Heartland OneCard to make purchases anywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted. How will I know when my refund has been deposited to my OneAccount? Students will receive an when their refund has been directly deposited to their OneAccount. Additionally, they will be able to see details of their OneAccount by accessing their OneAccount Statement on the website. Why is the Debit MasterCard logo on the Heartland OneCard? The Heartland OneCard is the card you use to access your funds. If you choose to open the OneAccount, you can use the card as a debit card wherever Debit MasterCard is accepted. The card is NOT a credit card. It is a DEBIT card. What will happen to my refund if I don t activate my Heartland OneCard? Heartland will not be able to disburse your refund to you. Regardless of whether you anticipate a refund or not, it is important to choose a refund preference using your Heartland OneCard at to avoid delays in receiving any refunds due to you.

6 Is there a cost for a new or replacement Heartland OneCard?

If the OneCard was mailed to the student address on file with the College and the address was incorrect or undeliverable by the US Postal Service, a $20 charge will also be assessed if the student needs a replacement card sent to a corrected address. Is the Heartland OneCard my official Heartland identification (id) card? No. Official Heartland photo ID cards are issued in person on campus throughout the semester. Go to the Library for more Information. What if I have additional questions? For more information about the Heartland OneCard and refunds, please visit or contact the College cashier at (309) Tuition Waivers for Senior Citizens District 540 residents who are 65 years of age or older are eligible for a waiver of tuition and standard (universal) fees. Verification of age is required by presenting an Illinois driver s license or other appropriate documentation at the time of enrollment.

Financial Aid Students attending HCC are eligible to participate in several financial aid programs. The major sources are from the U.S. Department of Education and the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) electronically at The priority deadline for filing for financial aid is April 1st prior to fall enrollment. Students who meet the priority deadline will be considered for limited funds available to the college. The HCC college code, , should be entered on the FAFSA.

To be eligible to receive financial aid at Heartland, a student must meet the following requirements: 1. Have a valid high school diploma or GED; 2. Be enrolled as a regular student pursuing a degree or certificate; 3. Be enrolled at least half-time, six credit hours (exceptions are possible for some aid types); 4. Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen; 5. Not be in default on any educational loan, show an unwillingness to repay an educational loan, or owe any refund on a grant or loan; 6. Meet the eligibility requirements of each of the aid programs accepted; 7. Be registered with the Selective Service if you are a male who is at least 18 years of age; 8. Have no convictions for the sale or possession of illegal drugs (depending on the date of the conviction, the student may be eligible for student aid); 9. Not receive financial aid at more than one school for the same period of time; 10. Make satisfactory academic progress as defined by the Financial Aid Office at Heartland Community College; and 11. Not receive tuition specific awards in excess of actual tuition charges. The amount of financial aid and/or benefits received from the various programs is based on the credit hours of enrollment. Financial Aid enrollment status is defined as follows: 0-5 credit hours less than half-time 6-8 credit hours half-time 9-11 credit hours three-quarter time 12 + credit hours full-time

7 Federal Pell Grant The Federal Pell Grant is funded and administered by the U.S. Department of Education. To qualify for the Federal Pell Grant, students must demonstrate significant financial need. Awards usually range from $287-$5645 per academic year. Students can receive Federal Pell Grant for a maximum of 12 semesters. After the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is evaluated, the U.S. Department of Education determines an estimate of Federal Pell Grant eligibility. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) FSEOG is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. To qualify for the FSEOG, students must meet specific criteria outlined by the financial aid office. Students who are awarded FSEOG must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester in order to receive the award. FSEOG awards vary in amount, but generally are $225-$450 per academic year. Federal Work Study (FWS) FWS awards allow for an opportunity to work on campus or specific off-campus non-profit agencies. Students who demonstrate financial need and who are hired under the FWS program will receive a paycheck every two weeks for hours worked. The U.S. Department of Education pays a large percentage of the hourly salary and the employer pays the remainder. Available jobs under the FWS program are advertised through the financial aid office. Students must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 in order to work under the FWS program. Direct Loans Heartland Community College participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. The direct loan program is available to eligible students who borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education. Loan funds are not grant money and must be repaid. Direct loans, subsidized and unsubsidized loans include: 1. Subsidized Loans are available to students who demonstrate financial need. The U.S. Department of Education pays the interest on the loan while the student is enrolled at least half time. The interest rate on these loans is determined annually by the U.S. Department of Education. The amount of the subsidized loan cannot exceed the student s financial need. 2. Unsubsidized Loans do not require the student to demonstrate financial need. The U.S. Department of Education does not pay the interest on unsubsidized loans. The student is responsible for interest which accrues on the loan while in school, during the 6-month grace period and during all periods of repayment. Students must complete the FAFSA in order to have eligibility determined for the program. In addition, students should complete an in-person-pre loan counseling session with the Financial Aid office. Depending on the financial need, a student may receive both subsidized and unsubsidized loans for the same enrollment period, but the total amount of these loans may not exceed the annual loan limit. Freshman students may borrow a maximum subsidized Stafford Loan of $3500. Sophomore students may borrow a maximum subsidized Stafford Loan of $4500. A promissory note must be signed each time a student borrows. Borrowers must also complete entrance loan counseling before the loan will be disbursed. All Direct Loans are borrowed money that must be repaid with interest, just like car loans or mortgages. Student loans cannot be cancelled because you didn t complete or didn t like the education you paid for with the loans, didn t get a job in your field of study or because you re having financial difficulty. Loans are legal obligations, so think about the amount you ll have to repay before you take out a loan. Repayment begins usually six months after graduation or when a student ceases to be enrolled at least half time. Repayment periods of Direct Loans vary depending on the amount you borrow and the repayment plan that is chosen. Parent PLUS Loans through the Direct Loan program Plus loans are available to credit worthy parents of dependent students. Parents borrow directly through the U.S. Department of Education and may borrow the cost of attendance less any other financial aid the student applicant receives. The interest rate is determined annually by the U.S. Department of Education.

8 In addition to completing the FAFSA, a separate PLUS loan application must be completed and submitted to the Financial Aid office in order for a Direct PLUS loan to be processed. Loan Exceptions In accordance with federal regulations, Heartland Community College reserves the right to refuse to certify a student loan on behalf of a student. These decisions are made on a case by case basis and will take into consideration the student s prior educational loan history. Students have the right to appeal any such decision to the Dean of Student Success for further review. Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) Monetary Award Program (MAP) is awarded to eligible Illinois residents who demonstrate financial need. Students are automatically considered for a MAP grant by submitting the FAFSA. MAP grant awards are specific to pay tuition and vary in amount but usually range from $256 - $1672 per academic year. Funding for MAP grants is limited and eligibility for the award is determined by ISAC and date of the FAFSA submission. In past years, the cutoff date for being considered for a full year MAP grant has been as early as March. It is to your advantage to complete the FAFSA as early as possible. Students can receive a maximum of 75 paid MAP credit hours at the community college level. Illinois Veteran Grant (IVG) Students who entered the military from the state of Illinois, served at least one year of honorable active duty and returned to Illinois within six months of separation, qualify for the Illinois Veteran Grant. The Illinois Veteran Grant pays tuition and universal fees at state-supported institutions for 120 credit hours of enrollment. The grant is not based on financial need, but students must maintain satisfactory academic progress. Applications for the IVG are available in the Financial Aid office or through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC). Illinois National Guard (ING) Scholarship Members of the Illinois National Guard or the Illinois Naval Militia who have served at least one year and are concurrently in the Guard or Militia may apply for this grant. The grant will pay tuition and universal fees for 120 credit hours of enrollment at any state-supported institution. Applications are available in the Financial Aid office or online through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), and must be submitted for each academic year of enrollment. Federal Financial Aid for Veterans The financial aid office will provide assistance and enrollment certification for veterans who wish to use their benefits at HCC. Eligible programs include, but are not limited to, the following: Montgomery G.I. Bill (Chapter 30) Selected Reserve Educational Assistance Program (Chapter 106) Veterans Educational Assistance Program (Chapter 32) Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance (Chapter 35) Post 9/11 G.I. Bill (Chapter 33) Applicants must complete VA forms and submit proof of their military service record and official transcripts for all previous college work. In addition, proof of birth, marriage and divorce certificates are required for certain veterans programs. Repayment of Federal Financial Aid Funds Any student receiving federal financial aid funds who completely withdraws from or stops attending all classes prior to the completion of 60% of the enrollment period may be required to repay a portion of the funds received.

9 Financial Aid Cooperative Agreement with Illinois State University Heartland Community College and Illinois State University (ISU) have entered a consortium agreement to maximize financial aid eligibility for students concurrently enrolled at both institutions. Under the agreement, the hours of enrollment at each institution can be combined for financial aid purposes. To be eligible, a student must be enrolled for at least 12 credit hours at ISU and the hours taken at HCC must be transferable to the student s major course of study. It is the student s responsibility to contact both ISU and Heartland financial aid offices prior to the enrollment period to complete a consortium contract. Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid The College is required to establish satisfactory progress standards for federal and state financial aid recipients in accordance with the U.S. Department of Education regulations. These standards insure that only those recipients demonstrating satisfactory progress toward the completion of their education continue to receive financial aid. Evaluation of Satisfactory Academic Progress Each financial aid recipient s satisfactory progress is evaluated at the end of each term. It will be determined if the student is in good standing or will be denied financial assistance for future enrollment periods. The student must meet all three progress requirements: 1. Completion rate; 2. Grade point average; and 3. Maximum time frame to remain in good standing Students will be notified by the financial aid office if they are placed on denial status for financial aid. Denial Status for Financial Aid Denial status will prevent the student from receiving any Title IV financial assistance until satisfactory academic progress is achieved. Criteria for Satisfactory Academic Progress 1. Completion Rate To remain in good standing for Satisfactory Academic Progress, a student must have earned hours equal to at least 67% of the total hours attempted. Students not earning 67% of the hours attempted will be placed on immediate denial status for future financial aid consideration. Attempted hours are defined as the hours for which the student is enrolled and charged tuition (10th day of the semester) plus hours attempted at the other College/ Universities. Earned hours are defined as the sum of hours for which a student has earned a grade of A, B, C or D. Withdrawals, incompletes, audits, non-credit, repeats for an F, failures, and non-passing grades are not earned hours. 2. Grade Point Average Requirements Financial aid recipients must maintain the following grade point average (GPA) based on cumulative hours earned in order to meet satisfactory progress requirements: Cumulative Hours Attempted Minimum Cumulative GPA

10 Maximum Time Limit Requirements A student s eligibility for financial aid will be terminated at the point where 96 credit hours have been attempted for the associate degree and, for a certificate, when 150% of the total hours required, as stated in the College catalog, have been attempted. Hours attempted is the sum of all Heartland Community College credit hours plus all attempted transfer credits from other schools whether or not financial aid was received. For more information on Satisfactory Academic Progress, refer to https://www.heartland.edu/documents/financialaid/forms02/f02sappolicy.pdf Appeal and Reinstatement Eligible students* may appeal their denial status by submitting a written request to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. The appeal must include a detailed explanation of the exceptional/unforeseen circumstances which existed as well as pertinent documentation to support the appeal and an explanation of changes made in personal, social or economic situations which will allow for improving chances for success. Unforeseen circumstances may include hospitalization of the student, death of an immediate family member or relocation due to employment. *Students in violation of the completion requirement and /or grade point average requirement may be eligible to submit an appeal. Students not meeting the maximum time limit/credit requirement (maximum of 96 credit hours attempted) are NOT eligible to appeal for financial aid reinstatement. Appeals will be considered for eligible applicants only if BOTH of the following criteria exist: 1. There are documented exceptional /unforeseen circumstances that existed that prevented the student from meeting the standard(s); and 2. The student can realistically meet satisfactory academic progress requirements by the end of the following semester. The deadline for appealing for satisfactory academic progress denial status is the last business day before classes begin each semester.

11 attempts of the course. Financial aid will cover the cost of tuition and fees for a maximum of one repeat attempt of any given course if the student has previously received a passing grade in the course.
